This book was just okay for me. I read it quickly and I enjoyed the tension and the action of it. It was a great mystery to follow along with, and I didn't guess the perp until almost the very end.
I loved the development of atmosphere. Learning of the history of the town and the hierarchy of cops, residents and criminals was interesting and immersive. It was this development that I felt the most connection too.
The characters fell flat for me. I thought most of them, aside from the mom, were one dimensional and predictable. I did sympathize with Eve, and Cal even, but I didn't relate to them and that made it hard to invest in the story for me.
All in all, I would recommend this for a mystery that's fast paced and has a decent level of suspense.
